    Another weekend, another London derby! Fulham makes the short trip to north London to face Tottenham. This rivalry isn't quite like the one we have with Brentford, but it will be Fulham's first visit to Tottenham Hotspur Stadium fully filled with fans so it will be a new experience for the team and the traveling fans. In Fulham's last visit they earned a 1-1 draw. You can watch this one on Peacock at 10am EDT.

    I'm not sure what to think going into this match. Fulham has shown they can be competitive with anyone, but this is the third match in a week, so I'm worried about the squad's condition. Tottenham are undefeated, but have played three of their five against struggling teams (Wolverhampton, West Ham, Nottingham Forest). If Fulham were to win this match by a three goal margin they would move above Tottenham in the table :D

    My hope is that we get another competitive and entertaining match. Fulham has shown they have the ability to get points today, but it will likely be another challenging day against the likes of Kane and Son led by Conte.

    Well-said. I want a competitive match, but points will be bonus. I want the team to feel confident going against Chelsea next week. It will be as tough at playing Tottenham, but I really want us to have the confidence to believe we can beat them at home.

    BTW, does anyone know when the 25-man roster lists are due from the clubs?

    The highlights:


    Well, after Robinson went out I thought Fulham were doomed, and they were, but they made it a lot closer than I expected. It is unfortunate that Robinson went out in the one week when there was no substitute available. Mbabu looked so uncomfortable on the left side. That discomfort led directly to the first goal and he was sitting on the wrong side of Kane on the second.

    I was thrilled that Mitrovic scored again and made Lloris work hard to earn the win for Tottenham. Fulham again showed a lot of fight.

    It put a smile on my face when Sessegnon turned the ball over to Fulham after a foul throw and the Fulham fans sang "He's one of our own". Well done Fulham supporters.

    Spurs were clearly the better side but having said that I like the fact the Fulham are playing the top sides and have proven they will not be rolled over. I do love the fight in this squad.
